Basic Oral Surgery
Practical oral surgery skills – including tooth removal, plastic surgery, surgical tooth removal, tooth-preserving surgery, soft tissue surgery, and implant surgery – are often neglected in dental school education or are only taught postgradually. However, it is precisely these skills that are necessary for every dentist to be able to perform the many basic procedures in general dental practice without blood pressure being raised and a sweat breaking out. This book deals exclusively with the basic oral surgical procedures that are necessary on a daily basis in the dental office. The clinical chapters are all identically divided into indications, contraindications, specific risks, local anesthesia, step-by-step clinical procedure, wound care and closure, and postoperative controls. The text is supplemented by only a few relevant literature references. The strength of this book lies in the series of images as well as the videos embedded with links, which can be viewed via QR codes using a smartphone or tablet. This combination of images and videos is intended to give students, early career professionals, and practitioners more confidence before, during, and after oral surgical interventions.
